I absolutely loved this conversation with Jacob. He has such a passion and love for running and has been running since middle school. We talk about his early running days, what it took to set a world record, coaching, maintaining longevity in the sport, balancing family, work and racing. Check out more about Jacob Puzey and his coaching at https://www.peakrunperformance.com/coaches
Bio: 
By most standards, Jacob’s running career did not start well.  Jacob never qualified for the Oregon State Track & Field Championships and consequently was not offered a scholarship to run in college. Upon graduation from high school, Jacob walked-on to the cross country team at NJCAA powerhouse, Ricks College, where he and his team won back-to-back NJCAA Cross Country Championship team titles in 2000 and 2001.

At only age 37, Andrew Skurka has already been there, and done that: "Hiking fast was not accepted. I was frowned upon for doing the AT in 3 months." Times have changed, and so did Andrew - he's done massive projects many people may not have even heard of: the Sea-Sea route (7,775mi), Great Western Loop (6,875mi), and the Alaska Yukon Expedition (24 days between road crossings). He's written a book, definitely has the best how-to website for backpacking (andrewskurka.com), and it's worth listening to his perspective on FKTs.

When your body becomes run down you are more likely to get sick. That simple truth is clearly apparent when you are fatigued and stressed because often those are the times when you become sick. The science backs this up, with many studies corroborating the fact that fatigue can weaken your immune system, leading to an increased risk of infection. As I am just overcoming a recent cold I have been thinking a lot about the best practices that one can employ to prevent fatigue and therefore prevent sickness. The key is to listen to your body. During times of tiredness and stress your body sends clear signals that you need to slow down and rest. Often, when you don’t listen to those warning signs, you become sick. The more that you can return to center and stay focused on keeping your body healthy the less likely it will be that you will get sick. Join me today as I explore a few key practices to stay energized and prevent sickness from day to day.
